Not so much a "moment" as something I do for fun.
Eating "CW bad" foods in front of the skinny-fat or plain-fat girls in the uni cafe, as they eat their "oh so healthy" 70% bread sandwiches. The looks of confusion, disgust and the odd bit of jealousy! Makes up for the mild awkwardness when I first start. *pure evil* I especially find funny how those REALLY thin ones look at me like I'm ill and "fat" (small UK 12), when their thighs are as thin as my lower arms and some STILL have more fat than I have, whilst the bulk of my "fat" legs is solid muscle.
Drinking 300ml of double cream straight was my fav. May try eating butter next time... Or eating raw skirt steak out the bag (butcher, no "packets").

I'm currently super pregnant, like few weeks left pregnant. And I've gained about 9-10 pounds the past 3-4 weeks, which is kind of a lot, but I'm at the end of my pregnancy and the baby needs to put on his fat too. My doc goes on to explain that I'm drinking TOO MUCH water (100oz a day) and its bad for the baby. My blood pressure isn't high and I have minimal swelling so I'm not having a problem with water retention anyways. I just couldn't believe it.

What Annie Did Next
Today, in Trader Joe's, we were in the frozen section when we passed a pair of women (both rather fat), who were discussing how one of them had recently switched to vegan eating. "There is so much fat in fish and meat!"
Under my breath, I'm muttering "because that's what your brain and hormones need, dork!"
" most of us have a natural tendency and an incredible talent for processing new facts in such a way that our prior conclusions remain intact" [C. Horngren, “Uses and Limitations of a Conceptual Framework,” Journal of Accountancy (April 1981), p. 90.]
Hey look! It's my Primal Journal
i love when someone uses a well placed 'dork' in a sentence

Giggles aside, you really can't blame people for following conventional wisdom.
Vegans don't follow CW.
Pedophiles don't follow CW either.
Yeah, I just put those two together. Meh.
Fact is, we're the freaks, the misfit mutants surrounded by readily-available (and free) information about the evils of fat, the benefits of whole-grains etc. From an evolutionary point of view we're the weirdos with a short-life expectancy or we're trail-blazing a 'new' path.
For the majority of the people, for most of the time, the CW is the correct path. Deviating from it can mean serious injury or death, imprisonment, debt or poverty and so on.
Heck, most of US were following it too!
So we can be smug or we can try and make a difference, right? So why not combine play with preaching, such as eating high-fat goodness in front of them -and then using it as an opportunity to explain why?
Most will resist but at least you've planted a seed of doubt. It all helps
